History is being made!
In just a few days, you can see the first ever Black Hole and that is something worth celebrating.
The Event Horizon Telescope is an international collaboration aiming to capture the first image of a black hole by creating a virtual Earth-sized telescope.
And it’s going to be a lot sooner than you’d think.
In fact, it’s tomorrow (April 10, 2019).
According to the Event Horizon Telescope’s Website:
On April 10th 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) Collaboration will present its first results in multiple simultaneous press conferences around the world, and many satellite events organized by its stakeholder and affiliated institutions. Press conferences will be held simultaneously in Brussels (in English), Lyngby (in Danish), Santiago (in Spanish), Shanghai (in Mandarin), Tokyo (in Japanese), Taipei (in Mandarin), and Washington D.C. (in English), starting at 13:00 Universal Time.
The event that is taking place is something that has NEVER been done before.
Scientists have based theories on Black Holes on surrounding evidence for centuries but now we may have some solid evidence to base those theories on.
This is a great time to be alive as this is something spectacular to witness!
